Letter: Lots of homes for the elderly in Lymington, but none for their carers
SIR – We have read of the need for more homes for senior citizens in Lymington, according to Churchill developers.
No statistical evidence is given, and the firm is inviting visits to their unsold properties in the town.
Our elderly residents are likely to need support in daily living as time passes, but we hear nothing of the need for accommodation for carers in the town. With the emphasis upon the homes for the elderly and no help in supplying affordable housing for those willing to care for them the future problems arising are obvious.
Let's hear it for the carers and the young people of the town before the identity of Lymington is altered for good.
